Kareri Lake serves as a foundation for trekkers hitting the trailing tracks deep into the Dhauladhar range. The Kareri Lake trek starts from Mcleodganj and leads to Kareri village at 1,800 meters, passing through a thick pine forest and some small villages. From Kareri village there is an ongoing rise to Kareri Lake. On this trail, people need to cross the Kareri Nallah numerous times over the wooden bridge, which makes the journey more adventurous. From Kareri Lake, the track falls to Bagga and thereafter to Rewa. The journey then turns to Guna Devi temple that lies at a height of 2,120 meters. From Guna Devi Temple, the track continues its come up towards Triund at 2,850 meters before finally wheeling to Mcleodganj. The snow melting from the Dhauladhar range serves as the source of the Kareri Lake and a stream, Nyund is the outflow. Since the source of the Kareri Lake is fresh melting snow and the lake is shallow. The visibility of the water is very high and in most places, the lake bed can be seen.
Kareri Lake is named after the nearby Gaddi village of Kareri, which is situated 9 km south east of the lake.
